THE STORY OF AFRO HAIR

by K.N. Chimbiri
illustrated by Joelle Avelino

 

One of our very best non-fiction reads of 2022. Provides a dazzling, grand entrance in to 5000 years of Black History (mostly UK and American) through a celebration of Black hair fashions and styles. Begins with the ancient Egyptian's locks, plaits, twists, wigs, natural curls; ends with today's every-which-way styles including cornrows, plaits, twists, puffs, bumps, knots, Funki Dreds and a Jheri Curl revival. What do those styles tell about Black History? Everything. Read on...

A vast history broken down into highly digestible chapters, enhanced by coloured-background pages, illustrations and archive photos; all encased in a beautiful, gold embossed hardback cover. 'What a very unusual and informative book- quite remarkable and very wide ranging. It is a marvellous source of information contained in one small space. Packs a powerful punch! '(Elaine, Foster Care Associates Liaison Officer, LL reviewer). Age 7-12, Hardback 123pp
